Power View is a browser-based Silverlight application. I've heard from some members of the community that they would like this dependency to be removed. I've opened this Connect item for people to voice their opinions. The original Microsoft documentation is here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh213579.aspx

This article is undated so I cant say if it precedes or follows the decision on this article.

I want to continue to stress that HTML5 Power View needs to get working for on-premise SharePoint. All clients want that and it is a major hurdle and killing MS in terms of business decisions to go with MSBI stack or others. This is vital to Microsoft's interests. You can't put much on a 250 MB PowerPivot file. Any team\enterprise BI systems need this to work on prem.

I just want to reiterate the importance of getting rid of silverlight and using html5 for powerview. It's a great tool but if you can't access it from and IPad or android device it's not going to go very far. We have sharepoint 2013 so it would be great if sharepoint on premise would support this. It sounds like this functionality is being added to Office 365 with the PowerBI but it needs to be in the on-premise version

+1 as long as it can still run in PowerPoint

Lets go MS. We need Power View to work on Droid / IOS. Not just IE and Excel!

+1 for HTML 5 folks want to be able to copy/paste from Power View -such as a long customer ID.

Would like to see Power View in HTML5 to conform to the modern browser in Windows 8.
Posted by Nikolas Charlebois-Laprade on 10/1/2012 at 7:00 AM
Power View now runs directly within Excel 2013. Since the default IE 10 browser doesn't support add-ons, RDLX files have to be exportable to HTML 5.

why work in app that Microsoft will not support anymore eventually.. better follow a standard and clean way with HMTL5 without plug-ins. Besides work in this component without Sharepoint.

PowerView has to run on IE 10. Right now it dows not run in the default browser of Windows 8 Consumer Preview

+1 for HTML5

+1 for HTML5

+1 for HTML5 over Silverlight. Bonus point for cleaving off dependency on Sharepoint and adding OLAP data source as well as Tabular. Oh, and some ability to customise color scheme....

+1 Since there is no active development for Silverlight, I would also opt for HTML 5.
For people wanting to vote for PowerView without SharePoint:
Posted by Gavin Campbell on 4/26/2012 at 2:56 PM
+1 even having the option for HTML5 (for instance) rendering would be great.

+1 for Power View without SharePoint. Of the 2, easier to get adoption of Silverlight than SharePoint
Posted by a-BI on 4/26/2012 at 3:37 AM
+1 I vote for Power View without Silverlight and even without SharePoint. This way it will be more public and standard as a leading data visualization tool among its competitors.
